Legion

What does a new expansion have to include? The Gamescom speculation continues. Some folks are even speculating that the next World of Warcraft expansion will be announced there, much as Legion was two years ago. I have no idea if that will be true, but if it is, I think we’re all wildly curious as to what it will contain. Will it be...

Tomb of Sargeras opening June 20 Reminder! If you’ve been waiting for the Tomb of Sargeras to drop so you can get your raid on, wait no longer — the Tomb will go live Tuesday, June 20. With this official Raid Preview & Schedule post, Blizzard spills the beans on not only when each difficulty and wing of LFR will come...




New Rogue pickpocketing quests and rewards on WoW 7.2.5 PTR Our old friend Griftah is up to his old tricks, and as you progress through the quest pickpocking Coins of Air (think the Dingy Iron Coins from Warlords updated) which you can turn in a repeatable weekly quest that gives 4999 gold in exchange for 10,000 coins.

What mechanics would you like to see in the next WoW expansion? Warlords had the garrison, Legion had the Order Hall and the Artifacts. What would you like to see as the new mechanic integrated into World of Warcraft: The Next Expansion? (It will almost certainly  not be named that.) Would you like to see a continuation of the Artifact, or are you looking forward to weapon...

Are you excited for what comes next in WoW? Sometimes I get fired up thinking about what we’re going to get to do and see after Legion. Don’t get me wrong, I’m totally down with murdering demons and all, but sometimes I miss the pure variety of bad guys we’ve seen in the past. As much as every raid so far this expansion has...

Know Your Lore: What comes next? One of the questions I hear a lot is: After we deal with the Legion, what threat could possibly be next? It’s a question I’ve asked myself a few times. There are some obvious answers, of course, but one of the trends I’m seeing in Legion is that we’re being our usual short sighted selves...




Legion PVP Season 4 unveils new Prestige Rewards Legion introduced a new Honor System based around Honor levels and, once you hit level 50, Prestige levels. If you PVP until you hit Honor level 50, you’d earn your first Prestige level, and then start leveling to 50 all over again to hit Prestige level 2, and so on. As you progress in Prestige...

What’s your weirdest reason to come back? Okay, I’ll just admit it. I started playing WoW again seriously because I love my current transmog. I’ve been kind of playing occasionally while playing other games (Mass Effect: Andromeda, Diablo 3) but after a couple of decent drops I realized my ilevel was inching towards 900 and, more importantly, I look good. Even my...



Latest WoW hotfixes address Cathedral of Eternal Night and more The most recent hotfixes include some mild class fixes, changes for PvP, and some adjustments to dungeons. The big changes were all to Cathedral of Eternal Night, which saw some significant nerfs overall. Agronox saw the most adjustment, and if you’ve been having a hard time in the Cathedral, now seems like a good time...

Developer Q&A with Ion Hazzikostas set for April 27 This Thursday, April 27th, we’ll be getting another Developer Q&A with World of Warcraft Game Director Ion Hazzikostas. It will be on the Warcraft Twitch channel, and they’ll be taking a look back at Patch 7.2 since its release, answering your questions about what they’re up to for just about anything involved in the patch...

Know Your Lore: The Fall of Argus, part two Last week we talked about the distant past, when the former Mage Thal’kiel of Argus attempted to destroy the Duumvirate that ruled his people, the Eredar, and rule as a tyrant. As a Warlock, Thal’kiel became known as the first of the Man’ari, a word that meant ‘unnatural ones’ in the Eredar language. But thanks...

What’s your class fantasy? Legion has focused on a return to “class fantasy” at the core of each class, and that has me wondering — does that core class fantasy change depending on when a player started playing WoW? Does it change depending on how long you’ve been playing? Or does it always tend to be an amorphous thing...

Hidden Artifact appearance and Warlock changes in April 12 Hotfixes If you’ve been working on your Hidden Artifact appearances and noticed you suddenly have the one for running dungeons, it’s not a bug, but a deliberate hotfix. With the Challenge Artifacts appearances now attainable, Blizzard decided to lower the amount of dungeons you needed to run with the hidden skin, because they wanted to let...

Artifact Challenge boss nerfs and other WoW Hotfixes for April 10 So far, I’ve seen a lot of complaints about Thunderslash being nerfed and not any complaints about Inquisitor Variss getting watered down in this round of hotfixes for Patch 7.2. DKs, Demon Hunters, Hunters, Mages, Warlocks and Warriors all saw Artifact Traits get some buffs or nerfs, and there were changes to dungeons, class halls...

Are the Burning Legion a monochromatic enemy? Is it just us, or is the Broken Shore kind of same-y? I don’t mean the quests or what have you so much as I mean the appearance of the place — kind of a mix of black and green everywhere, with big jagged rocks infested with demons and big green/black towers studding the place....

Legion Assaults are now live in WoW If you’re working on Broken Isles Pathfinder Part Two (come on, you are) you’ll be relieved to know that you can start working on Defender of the Broken Isles. That achievement is earned by completing all of the new Legion Assaults, which are¬†now live on NA servers. The first Assault is in Azsuna and will...
